Lidya is a fintech company founded in Nigeria in 2016 by Co-Founder & CEO Tunde Kehinde and is headquartered in the US. Today, we have teams based in Portugal and the US and we are the leading digital financier of SMEs in Nigeria.
Lidya’s mission is helping well run, fast growing business owners build high impact businesses and we have one of Africa’s largest, deepest and most comprehensive databases of SME data. Since we were founded, our systems have in aggregate digitized and analyzed over US $50 Billion worth of data, issued about 32,500 loans and are approaching US $100m in loan disbursements.
We are looking for the boldest, most driven and creative talent to join our team. We are working across 3 different continents and more than 5 time zones, but we do really feel like a team, so if you are friendly and a teamplayer we would love to talk to you.
Other than that, we want to hire people who are passionate, ready to communicate and collaborate in each project they are part of. Be bold enough to challenge us!
Working in a fast paced environment like Lidya has given me the opportunity to network and collaborate with highly skilled and hardworking individuals, from all over the world, who are committed and passionate about the work they do.
People are the most valuable assets of LIDYA and we strive to attract the most talented people who bring the necessary skills to help us achieve our bold vision. Equally important is that LIDYANS share the Company’s desire to build a fun place of work where team members take an ownership approach to their work and maintain a strong work ethic. At LIDYA we want a culture in which all individuals are heard, respected, and treated fairly regardless of level. - Tunde Kehinde Lidya’s Co-Founder and CEO
Our customers are the foundation of everything we do. That is why we deliver impact with ethics and integrity. Customers are our mission and our inspiration – they give us new ideas and keep us nimble. We are determined to help them grow.
As a team, we support each other and hold each other accountable. We have a “growth mindset” and believe through hard work, good strategy, and input from others, we can improve. At Lidya, we do our homework every day, test rigorously every day, and the best ideas win every day.
We give our best to provide next-level service to our customers (internal and external). Lidya is a commitment. Each of us takes responsibility and pride in doing exceptional work every day, because we are excited to build powerful solutions. Any task or item we are assigned, we know it is not “someone else’s problem”. We finish our work to the best of our ability and ask for help to make our output world-class.
Financial innovation demands agility, creativity, and never losing sight of the human relationships we have with our customers. Lidya is data-driven at the core. We believe in human intuition and imagination, but we are humble enough to know intuition may be wrong and use data to support our decision making and turn analytics into action.
We believe we can grow. Belief in our mission makes us ambitious to grow our global footprint. We aim to be number 1 (not number 2 or number 3) in all our markets. We also know that growth must be sustainable. As we take on new challenges, we will always remain rooted in our local communities.
Lidya is a strong, multicultural team. We are respectful, open, honest, empowering, and joyful. We know we cannot overcome obstacles without the team – or without perseverance. We know setbacks will come but if everybody listens, is brave and shows determination to succeed, we will develop personally and win together as a team
